We did the bottom of my mother-in-law's boat in La Cruz this year, about a month after the new management took over. The old manager was a notorious prick.
A 43 footer was just over $700.00 to haul out
and $1.00/foot/day for storage
. Not cheap
. Opequimar's prices in Marina Vallarta were slightly higher, but not much.
Pettit Trinidad SR paint
was about $500.00 a gallon at Zaragosa's. Not cheap
was about $200.00 a gallon and allegedly only good for a year.
We used Comex epoxy
primer, about $200.00 for a ~2 gallon kit, it was an excellent product at a decent price
Defender usually has some bottom paint
discounted pretty low.
The yard is professionally run now and Pedro, who is kind and professional and fairly priced is contracting repairs
in the yard or you can do your own work. I saw Pedro's guys (and girl) do some bottom jobs while we were there and they do a good job on the parts
that you can't see in addition to the parts
that you can. For DIY, California
would probably be cheaper. If you bring your own paint and pay the labor to Pedro, La Cruz may be cheaper than California
. I'm sure that Guaymas and San Carlos
will be cheaper than either.
